One corner of Kikusui Park in Hyogo Ward, Kobe City, has been developed as a biotope, and is loved by local residents as a place for relaxation and a breeding ground for fireflies. The colors reflected in the murmuring of the plants that grow in this precious area where you can feel the natural ecosystem are expressed in an astringent yellow-green.
